Frank Ocean is set to appear on tonight's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on the heels of his recent Tumblr post revealing his sexuality, and after Fallon and Questlove teased "a big announcement" that would be made on the show, people who were in attendance for the show's taping earlier began tweeting the news that Frank's new album Channel Orange will be released exclusively on iTunes tonight at showtime, one week before the July 17 physical release. Also mentioned in the fan tweets was that Frank will be performing "Bad Religion," an unheard song off the album. Peep the tweets below.
